Class 08 Locomotives in Scotland (Amberley)

Back Order

Since their introduction in the 1950s, the Class 08, the most common type of British Rail shunter, has been found in almost every area of the UK.

These machines carried out the shuntings and movements around stations and yards, with most depots carrying an allocation of at least one locomotive. A number have survived into preservation, but at one time more than 200 could be found in Scotland.

This book covers the Class 08s in Scotland from the BR era through privatisation and beyond, and features a range of different locations around Scotland. An introduction to Class 08s and their use in Scotland is included and each photograph is accompanied by a caption. 96 pages.
